Peter Maurin  –  Works of Mercy

In the first centuries of Christianity

pagans said about Christians:

“See how they love each other.”

The love for God and neighbour

was the characteristic

of the first Christians.

This love was expressed

through the daily practice

of the Works of Mercy.

To feed the hungry,

to clothe the naked,

to shelter the homeless,

to instruct the ignorant

at a personal sacrifice

was considered

by the first Christians

as the right thing to do.

Surplus goods were considered

to be superfluous,

and therefore to be used

to help the needy members

of the Mystical Body.
